Abstract

We present a novel system for 3-D visualisation of the heart and coronary arteries. Binary tags (generated offline) are combined with value-gradient transfer functions (specified online) allowing for interactive visualisation, while relaxing the offline segmentation criteria. The arteries are roughly segmented using a Hessian-based line filter and the pericardial cavity using a Fast Marching active contour. A comparison of different contour initialisations reveals that simple geometric shapes (such as spheres or extruded polygons) produce suitable results.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
